Sun of the Children is a 2.5D character-driven, side-scroller inspired by mythology, culture and nature. The game combines real-time storytelling and gameplay without the use of cut scenes, verbal or textual narration. Sun of the Children unfolds across three acts, the first of which requires the player to unite the land-bound Stardust Boy and water-bound Grasshair Girl by growing trees and moving platforms. As the characters move closer together, the world becomes increasingly vibrant with color.

This game is best experienced with an Xbox controller.  There are 5 graphical levels of quality. Pressing 'Q' will lower the quality and 'E' will increase it.  You may set this to your liking.

Really really nice game and gameplay ! I hope final version come soon !

Thanks for playing!

Does this build have the first act? 

(+1)

Yes, the 2D portion is the First Act. But, this is only a prototype. The full First Act would have players find and grow 3 trees instead on one.

On, nice. Hope to see more, this prototype shows lots of potential. :)

Game doesn't work, unfortunately. Just getting a black screen on launch.

Correction - it does work, but runs really badly, even though it's not at anywhere near native resolution. Please at least add some graphics options, even if you can't optimize it further!

Sorry for not mentioning sooner, but there are 5 settings for the graphics. 1 is lowest and 5 is the highest. Pressing 'q' will continuously decrease  it to 1 and loop back to 5. Pressing 'e' will go the opposite. 

This looks simply breath-taking.
